poetry party 32: from dust to dust

abbey of the arts poetry party 32

invitation to poetry icon

from dust to dust

poetry party 32Ash Wednesday
cascading memories
Mississippi Delta dirt
Nana's zinnias
daffodils springing from Salem soil
on to the university greenhouse
begonias in living room flowerpots
digging troughs for tulips on 5th avenue
Heather's perennials
Nick's greenery
condo complex landscape committee
Ash Wednesday
liturgy and another memory
I am dust and
starlight and
Jesus takes us back to the garden
